  • Do these rooms have their own bathrooms? Amy

    Dear Amy, In our hotel, every room category is different. In Budget room, you have shower and washbasin, but WC in the corridor. In Compact room, you enter by the bathroom, but then you have everything private. In all the other, it is regular en suite bathroom. Hope this will help you. Best regards, Maëva

  • Do you have shuttle from airport ? Is public transportation avilable upto your hotel from airport at midnight?

    Dear Mrs. Mr. , Thank you for your email. Unfortunately, we do not have a shuttle. The easiest way to come to the hotel from the airport, especially if you have luggage, is to take a taxi which will cost you about SFr. 50. - . You can get a free ticket valid for 90 minutes at a machine just before leaving the baggage claims… 1 ticket per person. Go to the check in level and exit the airport on the left entrance. You can take the Bus N°10 and get off at the stop called “Bel Air Cité”, which is just after the stop called “Bel Air”, follow the bus you have just left and walk for about 50 meters, then take the 1st pedestrian path up on your right, which will lead you to “Rue de la Rôtisserie”. You can also take the Bus N°5 and get off at the stop called “Bel Air” and make your way to our hotel via “Rue Du Rhone” and “Place de la Fusterie” The Hotel is located inside a gallery, which is between 2 children clothes shops (tricosa). Find the number 2. If the door is closed, ring on the intercom on your left (select Hotel Central and press on the bell button). Reception is on the 6th floor. Best regards, Pierre Receptionist

  • How much parking would cost per day? Thank you in advance.

    It depends where you park your car. We have discounted cards for the Cornavin car park (valid for minus 2 and minus 3 levels... minus 1 is only for pick up and drop off and is therefore very expensive). cost is around SFr. 20.-/24hrs.
